China fired missiles at Taiwan landed in Japan

According to Japan defense minister Nobuo Kishi Five ballistic missiles launched by China’s military during exercises around Taiwan landed inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone for the first time. This has triggered tension in the region.

The Defense Ministry of Japan issued a statement “all five of the missiles that landed within Japan’s EEZ — which extends 200 nautical miles (370 kilometers) from Japan’s coast — had fallen into waters southwest of Hateruma Island in Okinawa Prefecture.”

The Japanese government protested Beijing’s move through diplomatic channels. In which they raised concern over the country’s security and people’s safety. This move has been seen as an escalation.

According to Chinese defense 11 ballistic missiles fired into the waters to the north, east and south of Taiwan.

It is believed that 4 missiles have flown over Taipei before landing in Japan’s EEZ.

Let us tell you that due to the interference of American leaders in Taiwan, China is taking an aggressive stance. China is angry with Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan. China claims Taiwan is part of its country and Taiwan considers itself an autonomous state. China is conducting military exercises around Taiwan to show its power. At the same time, Taiwan has described this exercise as an irresponsible attitude.

US has extended its support to Taiwan and assured them to safeguard their autonomy at any cost. While China has cleared its stance and said that any interference in Taiwan from outsider countries will be considered an attack on its sovereignty.

Chinese military exercises have increased tension in the region. India is also concerned with the increasing Chinese activity in Sri Lanka.
